Firm makes a big noise over ‘quiet’ machine

MATHER+Stuart Power Solutions has outlined plans to invest almost £3 million in new Volt Safe equipment.

Volt Safe is described as a “super-silenced” generator, electrical distribution board and high capacity, triple-bunded fuel tank. Said to reduce noise to as low as 58dpa at one metre, the system is designed for use on noise sensitive sites.

The move forms part of a wider investment programme, with the first £1.3 million order, comprising 56 units, having already joined the fleet. 60 further units, totalling a £1.4 million investment, will be delivered in the coming months.

Gary Orton, director of Mather+Stuart said, “To support our expansion plans, keep up with customer demand and ensure we remain one of the UK’s market leaders it is vital that we continually update our fleet. Volt Safe systems are unique to the industry and we are thrilled to be able to continue offering our customers the most innovative, reliable, safe and environmentally friendly equipment available.”
